There is only one problem with this one ...it skips a generation. My grandmother said to my mother " I hope you have a child just like you" she didn't get one ...BUT I sure in the Heck did LOL :lol: She's now 25 and more like her grandmother every day ....but I guess there is pay back of a sorts. My daughter has a child just like his grandmother ....can't wait until she has a girl just to see what happens :bubbles:
